Don't get Adam wrong...there are definite perks to being a rising star in the music industry. Adam says the best part of newfound fame is doing what he loves and being financially stable. "It was such a struggle for so many years trying to make it, and I've gotten to help my mom out," he says. "She lives here in L.A. now."

Adam says he's also using his money to rent a home. "That brings me a lot of joy," he says. "It's very peaceful."

What else brings Adam joy? Shopping. With the funds he has left, Adam takes every opportunity to add to his eclectic, rock 'n' roll wardrobe. In Los Angeles, Adam loves to look for statement-making pieces at the Congregation of Forgotten Saints, a store on Melrose Avenue.

"I like things that stand out, that are different," he says. "I don't like to look typical. So whatever I can do to steer clear of that, I do."
